WAYWRN: MC Casual Style - Page 651

post #9751 of 16608
Thanks teger for the input. Getting a good camera is on my to do list (probably last though cause im trying to get art supplies to learn how to paint, gonna do this before starting photography).


Regarding the jeans, theyre a beater pair i bought 2-3 years back (i havent grown much since leaving high school frown.gif ) so i know theyre not the greatest.

I actually prefer jacket sleeves to come almost to the base of the hand, and shirt sleeves to end at the first knuckle of the thumb.

In an MC sense, the jacket length is fine, but the sleeves are too long.

You know, I don't even think MC is this hard and fast about these things.

I think sleeve length is almost entirely personal. showing shirt cuff has been brought into false relevance by sartorialist-eque commentary because of photography.

(IMO).

Hookem's outfit is probably very good, if not to my taste (it's too 'murican for me).


Hookem: What I would like to know (and I'm not implying anything here) is the context for such a fit. IME, I have never had cause to wear this sorta in-formal-but-not-casual type of outfit. In other words, I very rarely have an occasion that I need to wear a tie, but don't need to wear a suit. Could you describe the occasion? Cheers

Vox would disagree.

GDL might even disagree

As they are entitled.

It'd be interesting to hear the opinions of some of the tailors.

Getting the sleeve length correct in relation to the wrist seems less important than getting the sleeve length correct in relation to the body.

Especially if you have short arms, IMO it sometimes looks better to lengthen the arm length. Gives better proportion.

Regarding the SW&D vs. MC C. discussion; it pretty much comes down to one's definition of 'casual'. IST's definition of casual will most likely be quite dressy for most SW&D guys. On the other end the Ninja-Goth probably has no place here. Quite a few fits are compatible though, imo. This is one of the few threads here on SF that I follow as it allows for quite some playfulness and the vibe is generally nice.
That being said, I do agree with Teger that quite a few fits here are far from perfect and there is a lot of room for improvement (mine included). That's what makes it fun though...
In casual circumstances (at home, hoppig into town for or sometimes going to a bar), this is the kind of stuff I wear a lot (X-post from recent SW&D contribution, one of my very few).
It is however not the kind stuff we should be looking for, here at MC C. NODB Soccer dads; please keep posting your jeans, chinos, SC and cardigan combo's.
For me, that's what MC C. is all about.

youre wearing an undershirt out in public

Its not really an undershirt, the fabric is a lot thicker than that of my undershirts.

Mostly, but if you're coming from a dressing tradition that actually considers the dress shirt to be "underwear" then not completely

Thomas mahon had a blog post somewhere about being chastised during his apprenticeship for running across the street without his jacket on. He was asked why he was running around in his underwear.

This comes back to the beginning of this whole argument. When teger mentioned situationally appropriate clothing he was basing his statements on the wrong assumed norm. That's the underlying difference here.

I'm willing to take some things in context, but this is too much.

If you think a Tshirt is underwear you've been living under a rock for a good 60 years.
